Silhouette Patterns sew-alongs

Peggy Sagers of Silhouette Patterns is so generous with her webcast sew-alongs.
There isn’t much information about them on the Silhouette webcasts replay page, so here are more details.

Videos are about 1 hour long unless otherwise noted.
Webcasts may start with a general Q&A section, sew-alongs don’t.

I haven’t included any of Peggy’s Let’s Sew YouTubes, which are demos rather than sew-alongs.

TOPS – woven

Silhouette blouse patterns generally have 1” of armhole ease and no shoulder pads. Some light casual jacket patterns have the same armhole as the blouses.

  1. I am getting back to sewing again, and well cannot really figure out how to get my bust size.
    I was watching a program tonight and it was on a blouse pattern about going up on the bust size,
    I have been wearing exercise bras so really never got to measure anything. So how do I know that I have to increase the bust size and to what? I have lost 40 lbs and now going down another 30 so for me it is hard to see what I am at.
